Depends on which MSI board you are talking about. Even some "high end" MSI boards have low quality VRMs, so saying it has the same specs doesn't really mean anything.

I'd still go with the ASUS M5A97 or the open box ASUS M5A97 EVO

If you want to do some more research, check out this thread.

Oh and I will have to wait on the 1090T (since I have to purchase a video card now). Can you tell me how I can go about overclocking a Phenom II X2 565 (hopefully it unlocks too) with an ASUS M5A97?
